How old does a book have to be to be an antique?
Books have to be at least a hundred years old to be called antique, but the antique book dealers UK investors go to don't just price these old books for sale depending on age alone.

Books that are less than a hundred years old but are rare are also considered collectibles.
How do you know if antique books are valuable?
Even when it’s already determined that an old book is antique, there are other things to consider to know if it’s among the valued collectables. When it comes to buying antique books for sale, collectors would prefer booksellers’ collection of rare books for sale and first edition books for sale. Not all first editions are collectables, so you have to check the book’s popularity, if it was written by someone who was famous, if it was owned by a famous person, and if it has exquisite characteristics such as uniqueness and exceptional illustrations by famous artists, among others. Of course, the condition of those antiquarian books also matters, and there are still counterfeit ones you have to avoid. Come to our shop for these old and rare books. We work with certified antique book dealers UK trusts to ensure that we help to sell only items that are truly authentic and valuable.
